Anja Klein is a doctoral researcher at IRI THESys and a research associate at the Institute of European Ethnology. At the latter, she received her M.A. with a focus on Science and Technology Studies and began researching models and simulations of human-environment relations as a knowledge practice which then developed into her PhD-project. Being a member of the graduate program at IRI THESys now challenges her to make visible and communicate the interdisciplinary links and contributions of her research.
Teaching students (research methods, STS and Environmental Anthropology) is another important part of her work. Before joining Humboldt University, she studied Social and Cultural Anthropology at Freie Universität Berlin and Aix-Marseille Université and worked as a nurse.
